AN: Yet another drabble about Becker’s childhood. Still haven’t given them a series tag...




On Hilary’s twelfth birthday his parents gave him, among other things, a chocolate cake. It was huge, multi-layered, smothered in chocolate butter-cream and icing. Shop bought, of course, not home-made. Nothing but the best for their boy.

Like any little boy, he gorged himself gleefully, returning for slice after slice until bedtime.

The next day he felt sick at the thought of another piece.

His mother reminded him about the starving children in Africa. Waste was a sin. So was ungratefulness.

Hilary tried to smile as he forced the final mouthfuls down. He didn’t want to disappoint them, after all.

I'm quite impressed that I managed to give baby!Becker cake, and *still* be mean to him at the same time!

I do enjoy being horrible to baby!Becker.

You find such ways to torment Becker! I suspect Connor is relieved for the break...

deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 7th, 2013 06:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol! Connor might be feeling neglected if I don't hurt him again soon! They're both far too pretty when angsty.

I hope he's going to throw up all over his mother *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 7th, 2013 06:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol! He might, although I'm sure it would be an accident!

Oh, poor little Becker. I could imagine him having that mentality, though. Nice one!

I am horrible to poor little baby!Becker, I think he needs a hug.

That's so wrong!!! Poor Hilary! I want to rescue him and foster the poor baby.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 7th, 2013 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think he would quite like it if you rescued him and took him home with you! He needs more hugs :-)

Happy to oblige!

Poor Becker - that kind of insidious bad behaviour is almost harder to combat than outright abuse. *g* Still at least he enjoyed the first few slices...

Poor baby!Becker, I keep finding new ways to make his childhood completely horrible.

Oh God! The starving children in Africa thing always irritates me so much!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 9th, 2013 10:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, definitely.
goldarrow From: goldarrow Date: June 9th, 2013 04:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
My goodness those are abusive parents!
*shudders*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 9th, 2013 06:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
They really are quite horrible to him. But then, so am I! *evil grin*
ebonyfeather From: ebonyfeather Date: June 13th, 2013 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aww, poor little Becker.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 15th, 2013 07:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know, I'm horrible to the poor boy. Bad me *evil grin*

Oh meep. Poor wee Becker.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 15th, 2013 07:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Being horrible to Becker is almost as much fun as being horrible to Connor!
celeste9 From: celeste9 Date: July 21st, 2013 02:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Poor wee Becker! He can't even have chocolate cake and be happy! I want to hug hum.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 21st, 2013 03:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
He would probably appreciate the hugs, his parents don't seem to want to hug him very often! *huggles mini!Becker*
samueljames From: samueljames Date: July 28th, 2013 02:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Becker, it'll probably turn him off chocolate cake forever.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 31st, 2013 07:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, it probably would, poor boy.
